Its the first occasion I was able to see a Stoat with her family of Kits. I took the image at Buckenham and was amazed to see them together, they looked so mischievous. They were also interested in me as they all lined up with mum to watch me.

Thank you Fay for your nice comment and story. They are super animals to watch. I have seen two adult stoats this week, one very reddish & one brownish both have the black tips to their tails. On one occasion, one of them was scurrying along with prey in its mouth but It was too quick for me to get a shot. They are super strong for their size and young rabbits are a good meal for them at this time of year. Broken duck egg shells are laying close by too, so it could be the Stoats too. Keep that dashcam on in future Fay.
Kind regards Brian

Super image: I often see a family playing in the lane near here, and once had to stop the car to watch an adult bowling a large egg from one side of the road to the other. But this winter I saw something I never imagined I'd see in Norfolk: driving along a couple of minutes from my home in early Jan. a 50:50 brown and white one with bright white blotches all over its back crossed the road in front of me. Then, a couple of weeks later, nearish the same spot a full ermine crossed infront of the car: it was carrying a brown animal, rat or small rabbit perhaps and had it's little white head high in the air. Every bit of it was pure white except its little black tail!
One hell of a treat, made my winter!
Sadly the dashcam was not switched on either time. I think it was a pretty rare sight in Norfolk. Sadly it would be easy prey for anything looking for dinner.
Your image has to be a winner, I love it.
